Hugh Lane Gallery

Meet at 2pm at the school reception.

Price: FREE

Come and enjoy a visit to one of the most interesting art galleries in Dublin, the Hugh Lane Gallery at the top of Parnell Square. The museum has a permanent collection and hosts exhibitions, mostly by contemporary Irish artists. Francis Bacon’s studio was reconstructed in the gallery in 2001 after being dismantled and moved from London to Dublin. The Hugh Lane is notable for its collection of French art, including works such as The Umbrellas (Les Parapluies) by Auguste Renoir.
